Over sixty well-preserved structures can be observed within three massive walls which surround the site. There is a small beach beside the main temple, ideal for a swim while gazing up at the Maya's architectural wizardry.

In Maya, the name Cobá means turbid (cloudy) waters, almost surely an allusion to the five "cenotes" in this region: Cobá, Macanxoc, Sacalpuc, Yaxlaguna and Xcanh, which must have played an important role as a source of water for agriculture in the development of this zone. There is a small village in the region, very close to the archaeological site, which has some hotels and restaurants. Walking among these archaeological temples that have been set free from the jungle, breathing the humid air beneath the trees, treading on the thousand year-old causeways or climbing the pyramid's steep incline, the visitor is brought close to the culture of the ancient Maya. Everyone feels the sensation that it hasn't died but, rather, that it is asleep among the stones and the jungle, waiting for the right moment to be reborn from the depths of time.

Temascal  is a pre-Hispanic tradition of recreation, which  means “the house of hot rocks”. This ritual is practiced in Mexico nowadays as well and you can become a participant in it.
The Temascal is a tradition that comes from ancient Meshica cultures that have two basic aspects - on one side we have the spiritual aspect where the Temascal with its form of an igloo, made with local rustic materials, represents the womb of our mother earth and we work inside with her four elements: earth, water, air and fire to purify and balance our mind, body and spirit. Here we give thanks to our mother earth for all we have and we ask for help to take away from us all things that we don’t need any more. Those things in many cases are a limiting burden for us.  In short, the things that don’t allow us feel happy and feel fulfilled.
